Re: Week 1: Bears @ Stupid Cheeseheads 7:20pm NBC

i became a big fan of Mack the first time i heard about this anecdote (SIAP) He chose to wear the uniform number 46, an unconventional number for a linebacker, as a motivational reminder that his true potential was not being recognized - 46 was the overall rating assigned to him (out of a maximum of...

Re: Week 1: Bears @ Stupid Cheeseheads 7:20pm NBC

It doesn’t come down to stuff like this usually I know (especially when one team has Rodgers) but how many of their position groups would you take over the Bears? QB, TE, CB, safety? I certainly prefer the Bears WR, RB, LB, and DL. I prefer the KC scheme to what the Packers run, and I prefer Fangio...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

Javy is the current rightful MVP, but this is a real hoot:
He’s just the fifth player in major-league history to have 35 doubles, nine triples, 30 homers, 100 RBI and 20 stolen bases in a single season

ah, that elusive club...

Re: College Football - Week 1 (Sept. 1)

It's entirely possible ND's defense is just freaking great, but Michigan just didn't look like they've changed much of anything from last year offensively except going shotgun a little more often. Kind of a weird game overall. Michigan fans seeing why Patterson actually transferred and it wasn't be...

Re: Baez impresses Baez

while i wouldn't say half a win is meaningless, it's actually a difference of .8 I'm seeing 5.1 vs 4.7. Regardless, WAR has standard margin of error - any derived statistical indicator has one. Lowest suggestion I've seen is 15% and I believe the highest I've seen suggested is 2 WAR per year. So .4...

I abeee with the premise of don’t just look at WAR. But these other 3 guys are blowing him out of the water in WAR, the RISP/RBIs don’t make up for that, for me. On top of Martinez not playing defense other than ~40 games (which when he does is bad). Also, fwiw Benintendi is closer to Martinez in f...
